Sackett, Richard The Mean Clowns Music
Originally formed in 1979, The Mean Clowns enjoyed a brief stint of local NYC-metro area popularity, releasing self-produced cheese-ball 45rpm homage to the 3 Stooges, and playing CBGB's, The Uncle Floyd Show, U.S. Blues, Grumpy's Place and several other obscure dumps. Originally launched as a cover band boasting a set list of upwards of 100 tunes, TMC would crank-out Slade and Dr. Feel good covers while their more popular peers played it safe with insipid AOR covers of the day. Fast forward to 2008 - through the wonders of technology, three of the original clowns have reunited (Anthony/Heath/Priceless) - and with the addition of former Corpse Grinders/Brats axeman extraordinaire Jerry 'Pat' Pucsek - they have reinvented themselves as a totally insane, kinetic powerhouse of the unpredictable - starting out with cool covers of some of their fav. bands, from The Kinks and The Yardbirds, to the original Alice Cooper Group and Ziggy - The Mean Clowns promise to deliver many other wild & wonderful vibes from the 60's & 70's and beyond! Stay tuned, oh true believer!!
